When Tumba Rail took over the lease of Ladysmith, they constructed a look-a-like C2 toilet block, but modified the lamp room.
Greg Edwards Data Sheets has plans of the both the C1, C2, and C2 + lamp room structures, and I used these sheets to cut out the shapes from 20 thou styrene sheet.
The curve on the roof was a challenge. After getting one curve sort of close, I used that as the template for the others.
The vents for the gents area were constructed from thin styrene strip.
Basic shape glued together. I had reinforced some of the wall joints with scrap styrene blocks. I had entertained the thought that I would fit a full interior, but sanity prevailed.
Some basic painting of the interior I had fitted the eves, and vents too
Whilst I am covering the sides in corrugated iron (Brunel Models corrugated Iron fabrication jig allows strange shapes to be made), the exterior details also got some paint. Some roof beams are also installed - I felt that the roof may have been a bit weak without them. I am trying to match the colours on the Ladysmith station.
The roof was made from a flat sheet of 20 thou styrene, which I scribed about every 1mm. The scribing actually causes the sheet to distort naturally, forming a curve, which I used to good advantage
The roof goes on, and I set aside for a day to fully harden. After that I made up the curved valence, and the curved roofing sheets in a similar fashion to the water tanks of Ladysmith. These were glued to the roof. . Dullcoat to kill the shine, some paper edges for the sides, and glazing for the window
Build time took about a week. The finished result is a bit rough, and the curve valence of the roof is marginally thicker than it should be. However, it looks the part, and apart from the lack of downpipes (I am looking for photographs showing this), it is time to move to the next structure.
